Gondolas have graced the beautiful Italian waters of Venice for centuries and are one of it's most famous symbols... known worldwide. This typical Venetian boat is extremely ancient and is the result of a series of extremely complex craft techniques. A gondola is 11 meters long and weighs 600 kilograms. In spite of its considerable weight it is quite ease to maneuver by just one person using a single oar. Enough about physical measurements... it measures up best as a romantic memory shared by loving couples... memories shared by couples past and present that last forever!
